Congress may still have to resume session on May 23, 2016 and yet to convene as the National Board of Canvassers on May 25 – but cheating accusations from both Leni Robredo and Bongbong Marcos’ camps are already up on the air. Only the NBOC has the constitutional right to proclaim the new president and vice president.
Robredo, the Vice Presidential candidate of the soon to be out Liberal Party, said during the interview with GMA that she is open to a system audit as demanded by Marcos. This will eliminate doubts on possible election fraud; she said.
Meanwhile, lawyer Macalintal advised Marcos to get proofs of discrepancy between the election return received and poll watchdog Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting results to have a case.
